It happens to me when my lower left back starts to hurt. Do you feel any pinching on your lower back left side?

Welcome Maxmai1! I began having balance issues asking with foot dragging and dizziness. It started over a year ago but we didn't find out the cause until September. Mayo Clinic tested me and I have Vestibular Neuronitis of the VIII cranial nerve. I as put through PT for balance & strength training and it has helped me keep room falling twice already. Have you seen a doctor, neurologist or orthopedist? Hugs & prayers you can find out what's going on and soon! It was scary not knowing to me. They tested me for MS but it was negative. 🙂🙏💕🌼

Yes, I was diagnosed with having a sciatica issues, but that didn't cover my upper torso. Didn't cover facial numbness, pain in over 22 areas in my body. Going on for 9 months now. I have been to two different neurologist referred to USF for Ataxia.

Hopefully they can find the cause! I'm hoping to go to Emory University Hospital, because they have a balance & dizziness clinic. Hugs! 🙂🙏💕🌼
